Three pairs of trunks to be delivered.
I’ve praised these before and I’ll do it again- and no, I’m just a happy customer.
These are to be part of a street art project I’m working on. I didn’t realize there were so many of them until I took them out of the bag to take a picture.
…why is it so damn hard to take a picture of a bra while I’m wearing it?
The perspective is really weird, but it’s finished at least, and not a minute too soon, since my old ones are literally falling apart. I made it in double fabrics, but the covering cherry print rips reaaaalllly easy, so don’t know for how long this one will be amongst the living.
I really wanted to work with linen again, but all the pieces in my stash were too small it seemed. So the obvious solution of course was to combine them!
I used Burda 8754 which I’ve had for a long time, but never got around to use.
It worked out pretty well, the bust darts are a bit low for a change and I couldn’t really figure out how to hem the front pleats (no- sewing them together wasn’t the solution which I realized as I took the dress outside for photoshots:)
So today’s chore will be to re-hem the front. Don’t know if I can be bothered to move the darts, though.
Yeah. Happily composing a two colored linen dress, listening to Smokie and getting pretty far when it dawned on me.
I’d washed the green, but the red was a hand me down in small parts, very soft and I just assumed it had been washed and shrunk, but when pressing the seams some red came off on the board. And sure enough. Testing a piece in hot water it bleeds like crazy. But before I take it all apart I’ll test two pieces together, maybe the bleeding doesn’t stick?
